FEELING HEAT: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s flexibility on immigration reform makes him vulnerable to charges that he has lost touch with conservative principles.

By Kenric Ward |

Dave Brat is challenging Rep. Eric Cantor in a Republican primary — and giving the House majority leader a verbal thrashing on immigration.

“Cantor is following the agenda of the Business Roundtable and the Chamber of Commerce — pursuing policies that are good for big business, but come at the exclusion of the American people,” said Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College.

Brat’s upstart bid against the second highest-ranking House Republican may seem quixotic. But it’s part of a growing national movement to oust GOP leaders who fail conservative litmus tests.

Cantor, in Brat’s view, is flunking badly on border security. Indeed, the congressman even applauded President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address outlining a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

On Friday, Cantor said on the House floor that “immigration reform could be an economic boon to this country.”

Brat is having none of it. He calls the imminent GOP cave-in on immigration an exercise in “crony capitalism.”

“It’s incredibly unpopular. It lowers wages, adds to  unemployment, and the taxpayer pays the tab for any benefits to folks coming in,” Brat told in an interview.

“This is not equal treatment under the law. People who are waiting in line (to immigrate) are fuming.”

Brat asserts that Cantor has lost his way on Capitol Hill after seven terms in office. Once considered a reliable conservative, Cantor, along with other Republican leaders, appears more interested in seeking cooperation with Democrats while courting Hispanic votes this election year.

While immigration rates low among voter priorities, the Democrats’ ”fix” forges a fearsome duopoly of Big Government and Big Business.

“At every turn, the GOP establishment is favoring the elites,” Brat declares. “A change in immigration policy means amnesty.”

Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., supports Brat’s assessment. Without citing Cantor by name, he said GOP leaders are falling into a trap laid by Democrats.

“Not only would (amnesty) grant work permits to millions of illegal immigrants at a time of record joblessness, it would double the annual flow of new immigrant workers and provide green cards to more than 30 million permanent residents over the next decade,” Sessions said.

He called Democratic legislation “a hammer blow to the middle class.”

Kenneth Palinkas, president of the National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council, assails lawmakers of both parties who are angling for an immigration deal.

“There is no quality here, only quantity,” Palinkas wrote in a letter to Rep. Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican who chairs the House Judiciary Committee.

Palinkas said the adjudicators his union represents at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services “are not equipped to handle (increased) workload. We have become a visa clearinghouse for the world, rather than the first line of defense for a secure immigration system.”

As corporatist Republicans go wobbly on the border, Brat said Cantor is violating the party’s “six conservative precepts.”

Cantor’s office didn’t respond to Watchdog’s requests for comment.

Traversing the staunchly Republican 7th Congressional District, which stretches from Chesterfield County south of Richmond to Rappahannock and Page counties on the cusp of Northern Virginia, Brat is counting on grassroots support.

Larry Nordvig, executive director of the Richmond Tea Party, says Brat has his group’s “100 percent” backing.

“The feeling from the grassroots is, ‘Finally! We have a viable candidate to get rid of Cantor,’” said Nordvig, who brands the congressman “backward on all the issues that matter to true conservatives.”

            I understand why the democrats want the US invasion by illegals, the illegals vote democrat and they love unions. On the other hand, the Republicans that are pushing it are doing so for big business donors, which really is despicable and against everything Conservatives stand for. We need Tea Party patriots elected that will actually stand up for Americans.

          • BenjaminGhazi February 6, 2014 at 6:28 pm #

            Karen, The illegals come from socialist countries and love our welfare state. Yes, they are guaranteed to vote for the democrat for all the free beez, but truth is there ain’t all that much time left for all this ‘Standing up for America’. And, if we started today, it would take us 100 years to undo what they been done to our country but a quicker way also exists….

            The extreme nature of your caption and the tone of your posts detracts from a serious deconstruction of what the left is trying to do with immigration reform.

            Does Barack Obama want to see genocide of whites? Does Eric Holder? Or Valerie Jarrett? Probably. But posts like yours do nothing to wake people up, and instead allow the opposition to brand you with a little red & black swastika.

            The fact is that Eric Cantor, John Boehner, and the rest of the white GOP leadership want to sell you out to a bunch of white corporate jerks who could care less whether you or your white kids can get educated or get work. They’d rather hire illegal immigrant Jose Gonzales under the table at $10 an hour than hire your white MIT-educated son at a $100k/year salary.

People like, Faceberg who wants to devastate the high tech worker market for native born Americans. Faceberg wants to bring in millions of Indians and other low wage foreigners to take these decent jobs.

          • MoFreeMoney February 6, 2014 at 6:11 pm #

            There are plenty of illegals willing to work, and corporations would love to hire them legally. What everyone fails to realize, once legal, they will go straight on the dole where they can make more tax free Obamabucks than taxable wages. $42,000 TAX FREE Obamabucks vs $36,000 Taxable for a mom and 2 kids. (welfare, section 8 housing, discounted utilities, tax rebates, cell phone, aid for dependent children, free school breakfasts and lunches…….)

          • VulpesRex February 6, 2014 at 7:57 pm #

            The funny thing that the chamber of commerce numbskulls don’t seem to realize is that the cheap labor source will not remain a cheap labor source for long. The La Raza groups are just itching at the opportunity to file lawsuits in order to “equalize” the wages of these workers. Any provisions that allow for guest workers to be paid less than minimum wage will be before an Obama-appointed federal judge faster than you can say “wise latina woman.”

            And don’t even get me started on how quickly these newly minted workers will be unionized. If you think Trumka has a lot of power now, just wait until he has an additional 3 or 4 million members paying dues in SEIU.

          • levotb February 6, 2014 at 8:24 pm #

            Try 30 to 60 million new workers!

          • Danvil February 12, 2014 at 12:42 pm #

            The whole BS 11 million illegals is a lie. I think we have 11 million illegals in NY and NY alone. I believe we have 50-60 million illegal and more jihadis are coming in every day to transform America. Get ready for Sharia law. Femaile genital mutilation is coming to a crotch near you. Honor killings of victims of rape are an everyday thing in the religion of peace and are happening in the Middle East and Africa and are happening in the US and Canada,

          • IronYank February 6, 2014 at 8:49 pm #

            And lets remember they want to raise the minimun wage as well

          • sbuffalonative February 7, 2014 at 1:30 pm #

            Forcing them to raise minimum wage would be good.
            The whole point is that they want low-pay immigrant workers.
            If businesses are forced to pay a ‘living wage’ they won’t be all that happy with paying immigrants top dollar.
            Cheap labor won’t be cheap.

          • Nailbanger February 7, 2014 at 8:02 am #

            Business don’t pick up the costs. S ection 8, EBT/Sap, Emergency Rooms, Skool and public edhamakation are picked up by the greater taxpayers. Further, the glut of low skilled labor keeps the domestic American under price pressure for his labor.
            Just as many American Democrats have secure, low accountable jobs with full benifits, pensions employed in the government welfare agencies, sotoo are many corporations, businesses and even Doctors. For example Wal-Mart, landlords that rent their slums and trailers for a Section 8 voucher.
            Its not just the businesses that hire, its the ones that want the invader tax increasers to apply pressure and the businesses that harvest the lical, state, and federal welfare, taken by force from the hours and years of work that we all do as modern day slaves and serfs to our small and large masters and all that obey them and carry out their thieving under the color of law.

          • MoFreeMoney February 7, 2014 at 10:21 am #

            I wish I was being silly. Obama has eliminated Clinton’s successful welfare reforms. Successful because despite predictions poverty DID NOT rise. And has increased benefits across the board. He is paying BOUNTIES to people who get new enrollees into food stamps, onto ObamaPhones etc. He has increased FEDERAL entitlement spending by a TRILLION dollars per year. Obamabucks. Once on the dole, they will vote for themselves rather than America. 50 failed years of fighting 12% poverty, and Obamabucks have caused poverty to rise to 16%. Obamabucks have also caused dropouts to skyrocket from 12% to 16%.

Let’s go America! Don’t play the PC game. Who cares if someone is offended. Everyone is offended by something, but that’s their problem.

            Sorry, but you are wrong. If Bush the Elder had kept his word, we would not have had a Clinton presidency. The biggest plank in his campaign platform was, “Read my lips. no new taxes.” When he compromised with the dems and raised taxes, they reneged on their part of the deal.

            If Bush had stood on principle, and kept his word he’d have won re-election handily. There would have been no open door which allowed Ross Perot to siphon off enough votes from Bush to get Clinton elected.

            I voted for Perot because I could not abide someone who betrayed me. That should have taught the republicans about betraying their constituents who elected them.

            Sadly, they are more interested in saving their political hides than in sticking to their principles.

            As long as voters hold your perspective nothing will change. You’ll be cursed with RINOs and die a death of a thousand cuts.

            Your argument is simply a regurgitation of the Republican hierarchy. Look where that has gotten us.

He was feeble and passed out/vomited in front of the Japanese PM for all Americans to see. He went from a 91% approval rating into the tank. He didn’t seem to want to be President any longer and he lost to a younger man though a leftist-womanizer. Perot voters would not have voted for Boosh had Perot not run.

            So who picked Paul Ryan to be on the ticket with Mitt Romney?

            Viola our enemies within.

            Since during that 2012 campaign Paul Ryan did not let US know his amnesty and immigrant agenda

          Paul Ryan claims to be a Randian capitalist, but he never read her, or obviously, could not grasp her ideas and principles. Ryan does not attack Corporate Welfare but he rabidly attacks Workers. Rand opposed the Military and Religion as enslavers of the body and the mind, but Ryan grovels to both. Ryan is all FOR war ….. as long as HE can PROFIT off it but does not put himself in “harm’s way”. Ryan is all FOR religion, as long as he does not have to show grace to the Working Class. Ryan strongly attacks Social Security, even though he cashed every single check after his Father died, and was so rich to begin with that he could SAVE all those Social Security monies to pay for his college.
          During Obama’s 2014 State of the Union speech, TRAITOR Paul Ryan joined all Dems to cheer Obama’s amnesty push…
          When did this “patriot” ever wrap himself in an American UNIFORM?
          He always HIDES behind the American FLAG! He is a FRAUD.

          Rubio has been an advocate for illegals all his legislative life, going back to the early 2000’s in the Florida House. His record is littered with DREAM Acts and other favors for illegals. He and his buddy Jeb Bush are passionate for amnesty. Rubio does the amnesty shuffle. He backs up and lies when he needs to (like to get elected to the Senate) and then slips back as soon as he thinks the coast is clear.
          Never trust this man. He is anti-American and pure evil.

          • SWDC February 6, 2014 at 7:38 pm #

            Paul Ryan is even worse. Remember Paul Ryan did nto disclose his amnesty and immigrant agenda dsuring the 2012 campaign.

      • tham February 6, 2014 at 7:15 pm #

        Rubio has backed off his support of immigration “reform”, but sure is hard to trust him at this point. Another reptile.

        • Rainier February 6, 2014 at 7:25 pm #

          It’s impossible to get into the mind of a guy like Rubio or these other One Time Conservatives and understand how/where they went wrong or how their view of reality became so warped. Thankfully we have options and don’t have to settle for the lies or the likes of them.
          Scammers like Rubio, Boehner, Cantor, McConnell, et al, they have NO Right to those High Offices any more than the Next Man Up! Forget about why they lost their way and focus on finding people with a sense of duty and integrity.

      Polls report 80-90% of Americans want the borders secured and no amnesty but the Federal government refuses to do it. The People have been demanding for over 40 years that their “representatives” in government enforce the immigration laws already on the books, but Congress has continued to do the same thing over and over to keep the borders secured. Why? Because both parties depend on campaign contributions from corporations that benefit from below minimum wage labor. In other words, they represent the corporations rather than the People as the Constitution intends. The truth is, the last thing many in Congress want is to secure the borders against illegal immigration, yet it’s the first thing that must happen to effectively address the problem and maintain national security in these dangerous times.

    Cantor has been talking about his Dream Act he’s been writing for the past year — but he still refuses to release any text of the legislation. Could it be that his “Kids Act” bill is really designed to legalize millions of adult illegal aliens? That is quite likely.

    Here in Arizona during John McCain’s 2010 primary against conservative former Congressman J.D. Hayworth, you’d have thought McCain had experienced a Road to Damascus Moment. He had finally seen the error of his ways and was going to be the conservative they’d been longing for. Of course, you can see how long that lasted. Just until he got his six more years. Then he was back to his evil Mavericky ways. You see, politicians always know better than their voters, which is why they lie to them to get elected and then feel free to stab them in the back or even switch parties after they win office.

  10. tjb357452 February 6, 2014 at 4:42 pm #

    Cantor always seemed more of an opportunist than a Republican. His “coming out” on amnesty, and embrace of the Chamber of Commerce’s wanton desire for cheap foreign labor, should render his position as majority leader as open to challenge. Cantor’s simply another of Chuck Schumer’s Republicans.

    The GOP leadership (GOPL) is funded by big business, factory farms and the hospitality industry. All the above want a continuing flood of cheap labor and they don’t care what happens to the country when it is flooded with millions from third world nations. They are paying the GOPL and the GOPL doesn’t care either.
    The GOPL will never take on the Dems. Shortly after the 2010 election Cantor was on FOX news and was asked what he thought about the charges of racism being hurled at the GOP by top Democrats. His reaction was that it was “troubling.
    You are called racist by your political apposition and that is “troubling”. Harry Reid routinely insults the GOPL because he knows the GOPL will never take him on.

    • Celebrate Homogeneity February 6, 2014 at 5:03 pm #

      So, in effect, those that so many refer to as RINOs are, in fact, Republicans as the party is now constituted. REAL defenders of the border, REAL defenders of proper immigration policy, and REAL defenders of equality but happen to have an R next to their names may in fact be RINOs. They had to run under the banner of one of the brand name parties.

She was a rising star at Goldman Sachs before Cantor left graduate school. Cantor’s are very close to billionaire Ronald Perelman and stay at his mansion frequently as guests.

    • FLV19 February 6, 2014 at 5:52 pm #

      The Republican Party has always been the party of big business. It’s not surprising that the Republicans support the cheap labor that illegal immigration provides to the business sector. And the GOP never was a party of limited government either. Lincoln went to war to preserve and grow the power of the federal government, It’s time for those dedicated to the founding principles… government and individual liberty………to look elsewhere for representation. Obviously it’s not with the socialists/fascists of the Democratic Party either so but maybe supporting a third party is in order.

      • RobL_v2 February 6, 2014 at 6:08 pm #

        Lincoln was not ‘of big business’ but for free markets, big difference. And Lincoln did not go to war to preserve federal power but to preserve the union. True he had to expand federal power but that happens in time of war. Sadly we never got a chance to see what he would have done after the war but from his speeches and writings its clear he would have not tolerated the carpet bagging corruption which ensued under Johnson.

    Cantor, along with Ryan and Boehner need to be primaried.

    • BAW February 6, 2014 at 6:17 pm #

      It seems there are more serious primary challenges to incumbent Republicans this year than ever before.

      At least 7 of 12 Republican senators up for reelection face serious primary challenges including the Senate Minority Leader.

      As we know from this article, Cantor has a serious, credible, viable primary challenger. I think Boehner does, don’t know about Ryan.

      I seems to me there is far more genuine anti-incumbent, anti-establishment sentiment than I have ever seen before.

      There have been a few individual cases (when some Republican when too far) but I think it is possible that this could be the year voters prove that they believe in term limits and actually vote incumbents out. Not all of them, maybe not even many (incumbency is powerful) but every one will be a step in the right direction. And every one prove that, “it could be worse” isn’t a good argument anymore when it’s gotten as bad as it is with no relief in sight. And if we’re really lucky or a serious number of people feel that way, it could be sort a wave in that regard since it is an off year election. I’m going to assume it’s possible and support the underdogs, vote against incumbents, and “hope” for real “change.” Change that could set the Republican party on the path of becoming “literally” conservative instead of just “figuratively.”

  59. jetch February 6, 2014 at 5:23 pm #

    for the life of me, I don’t get how giving amnesty to illegals will help the economy. they say it over and over again, but never explain it!! I would love for a LSM reporter to ask cantor to explain this.
    the most obvious explanation would be cheap labor, but with the minimum wage agenda that they’re pushing now, doesn’t that nullify the cheap labor?!?
    over and over again we heard cantor, ryan and Boehner tell us how bad the economy was for americans, but instead of fighting the good fight on that, they just decided to switch to something that *might* get them a few votes. so the second question I’d want the LSM to ask cantor is why did he give up fighting to improve the economy?
    the only reason this challenger doesn’t stand a chance is money. I’ll send him 20 bucks and if others do the same at the very least it will send cantor a message…

    • sickofthis February 6, 2014 at 5:31 pm #

      The same way Obamacare helping our economy. “This will help the economy” is the catch phrase they throw out to get the LSM and low info voter support. Who is going to go against something that will help the economy. If you are against it you are extreme and UN-American. The truth is they are either stupid or lying.

  65. Conservative Poison Pen February 6, 2014 at 5:27 pm #

    Cantor and the other Republican establishment leaders have a very bad case of “beltwayitis”, the loss of moral compass and character caused by over exposure to “ruling class speak” and extend time spent within the Washington DC beltway. There is only one cure for it, permanent removal from Washington DC. These so-called conservative leaders went to Washington embracing conservative principles and actions but over time have morphed into Democrat-lites! They have shifted their views from fighting for limited government and reduction in the size and power of the federal government to the Democrat-like “Washington, federal government knows better and big government is the solution” position. There votes, actions and words confirm this even though they continually try the double speak to convince conservatives that they really are still conservative. Dave Brat and others like him need to step up and challenge these Democrat-lites and maybe, just maybe some conservativism will return to the Republicans in Washington and its leadership. True conservatives do not sell out the American worker for the principles of immigration reform, taxpayers to increased fees and taxes caused by excessive regulations and implementation of grievous laws, passed without reading and under the cover of darkness, and the American value of “I can and will provide for myself and family”. It is time for action and forcing politicians to own up to their votes and actions!

    It’s not a “conservative litmus test” it’s every principle of conservatism.

    It’s hard to argue that the Republican Party or anyone in the D.C. leadership is more than just a little, kinda, sorta conservative. Maybe they are strong on national defense or maybe they are strong supporters of 2nd Amendment rights and maybe they talk the talk about being fiscally conservative but that does not make them fundamentally or seriously conservative.

    And it’s very easy to argue that the Republican Party and establishment Republicans are not conservative at all.

    Establishment Republicans are just as much a part of the every growing, every bigger, ever more controlling federal government as are Democrats. And while they will claim otherwise, there is no evidence that they have made any real, much less effective effort to truly slow the growth of big government.

    Establishment Republicans don’t oppose Big Government, they are part of Big Government.

    I respect Sen. Sessions but he needs to be careful and not fall into a trap himself.

    He may be being naive in thinking “GOP leaders are falling into a trap laid by Democrats.” He may be giving them the benefit of the doubt when they do not deserve it. At least some are clearly walking into this because it’s what they believe or what they want or for their own benefit.

    It’s one thing we conservatives need to always be aware of. Being too trusting, too slow to recognize the duplicity of our own. We want to trust, we need to trust but if we don’t or can’t verify we can no long afford to trust, even “our own.”

    Many in the GOP have forgotten what America is. Illegal immigration was never who we were. We set up common sense immigration laws that required background checks, screening for disease, the ability to be able to hold a job in America and become self sufficient, and to speak English. By allowing illegal immigration, we have allowed a resurgence in diseases, bedbugs, lawlessness and the deliberate financial raping of the American taxpayer. Anyone who supports a pathway to an illegal immigrant or a dreamer, is not worth leading this country. RINO’s Beware!

      The nasty fight coming for the New Democratic Progressive Union Socialist Communist Fascist Party is just getting started. Off in the distance you can see the crest of the tsunami coming that will wash many of these liberal bed wetters, nose pickers, pedophiles and flim-flam artists from office. Soon they will begin to eat each other and their young as they realize how bad it is going to be. It will be glorious.

    I hope Brat has more to challenge Cantor with than just immigration. The only way a conservative / Tea Party candidate wins this primary is if Cantor does cave on immigration. If not, he’ll cruise in the primary.
    The damn shame of it all is, hopefully, the GOP won’t have to spend much money in the primary to defend this seat. This is what the Tea Party fails to comprehend: in their vigor to take over the world, they cause the party to spend resources that could and should be spent for the general election…money that could and should be used to win the Senate.

            Their constituents, the majority of the party, are NOT conservative or Tea Party. We’ve just got a vocal branch of the party who seems to think they speak for the party.
            We need that branch to shut up. We can run as moderates, court the 20% of the electorate that actually determine elections, win, then govern as conservatives. The conservatives / Tea Party would rather run as fringe candidates, lose (except in the most red districts) and blame the media.

          • teets February 6, 2014 at 6:31 pm #

    The hope that Hispanics will flock to the GOP ranks if given citizenship is pure BS.
    Their culture embraces big government and socialist policies and to think for a moment that they will “like us” if we give them amnesty is insane.

    So here is how it works. We have a whole bunch of Hispanic immigrants. Anyone who thinks they are getting deported is delusional, it will never happen.

    The democrats choose to at least pretend like they like them, at least treat them with some level of dignity. The Republicans demonize them. As a result they will identify with the Democratic party for generations. This is a huge block of voters and growing.

    Now go on and say why they deserve to be demonized. That is fine. That’s not the point. The point is that Democrats are making the smart moves for a permanent (at least long term) majority. The GOP is really blowing this.

    The GOP wants to alienate brown people, gay people, non-Christians, scientists, woman, environmentalists etc……

    Pretty soon there is nobody left in the room. Oh well. RIP GOP. Hasta Luego!

    • teets February 6, 2014 at 6:28 pm #

      the GOP treats all citizens equally while the democrats treat minorities as if its still the 1920s and widespread systematic racism still is prevalent. this younger generation will flip to GOP in 10-15 years as the democrats move more towards pseudo-fascism/socialism and the libertarian wing of the GOP continues to gain influence…i dont know how long treating non-whites like incapable boobs who need the government to be productive human beings will work

      • ReagansZombie February 6, 2014 at 6:39 pm #

        Say what you want, but GWB won 44% of the latino vote in 2004. BHO won over 80% in 2012. That should be troubling to you. That is large demographic, and the fastest growing in the nation. Dems are smart enough to react to that, GOP is a bit slow on the draw.

        • teets February 6, 2014 at 6:46 pm #

          the GOP just wants to make sure our border is secure..there are people out there that want us all dead and not having a secure border with a corrupt, 3rd world nation is dangerous. it shouldnt be about politics but the democrats make it about that by refusing to actually stop illegal immigration to gain what they view as future voters

          • ReagansZombie February 6, 2014 at 6:47 pm #

            I believe the senate bill has provisions for tightening border security.

          • teets February 6, 2014 at 6:51 pm #

            yeah, it did when reagan did it too…democrats (including you in this thread) consider it “shrewd” politics to have open borders…which is sociopathic and insane…the elder tsarnaev brother was here illegally on an expired visa and our FBI knew it but refused to enforce the law….now a bunch of little kids have prosthetic limbs..but, hey, it’s “shrewd” politics, eh?

          • ReagansZombie February 6, 2014 at 6:54 pm #

          So the best the GOP can hope for is less than half of a minority of voters? The republicans would be idiots to chase after such a small group by doing things that upset and discourage their strongest supporters.

          • teets February 6, 2014 at 7:01 pm #

            i think you are making a mistake to assume that if granted amnesty most of these illegals would even try to become citizens (a lot of them send all their earnings back to family in latin america) and then even vote, let alone only vote democrat – if things dont improve economically for people outside of the top 0.5% then the democrats will have to completely change their economic policies or else lose the confidence of everybody with any personal motivation or ambition

          • ReagansZombie February 6, 2014 at 7:04 pm #

            They don’t have to grant citizenship. Just give the appearance of being sympathetic to their cause. They voted dem 3-1 in 2012. I’m sure the Dems would be happy with this status quo, particularly as the percentage of hispanic voters continues to grow.

          • teets February 6, 2014 at 7:06 pm #

            they are voting democrat because they believe the democrats will help them get better jobs. but that obviously will never happen and they will either end up as bad off as the black community since they started exclusively supporting democrats or they will start to vote for republicans….things arent gonna get better for them economically as long as democrats are in charge just for the simple fact that most everybody with capital is basically on strike and sitting on their hands because of how they are demonized by democrats

          • ReagansZombie February 6, 2014 at 7:09 pm #

            It may not be as obvious as you think. There have been many thriving economies under both R and D administrations. I wouldn’t think a single party owns that.

      Why is enforcing the laws of the land delusional? It is actually very easy you simply deport them every time they are caught here illegally. You also make local law enforcement start arresting them as well. Once they begin to understand that they will be deported it stops. You probably also believe wrong is right, success is evil and every other liberal nonsense that you are told…

        • maxonepercent February 6, 2014 at 6:58 pm #

          Actually, among native-born hispanic Americans amnesty is not widely popular. You have to understand that these people are the ones who are the most directly effected by illegal immigration, both in crime and in competition for jobs. The idea that the vast majority of hispanics want amnesty is a lie told over and over again by the democrats who want to turn them into another welfare-dependent, blind-democrat supporting underclass like they have with the blacks.

          • ReagansZombie February 6, 2014 at 7:01 pm #

      I live in a state that shares a border with Mexico. Needless to say, we have had a lot of trouble with illegal immigrants. However, several years ago the state house passed a much maligned bill that, among other things, gave police officers the authority to check the immigration status of suspected illegal immigrants. Most people are aware of the backlash, but what most people are not aware of is the major effect it had on illegal immigration in our state. Afraid of being caught more than 100,000 illegal residents fled the state, unemployment dropped, budget problems related to school and prison overcrowding disappeared, the numbers of people on welfare shrank. The effect was palpable. The point is that even the THREAT of enforcement alone is enough to convince most illegal immigrants to leave. For the most part these people are transient, they are no more connected to the US than is a tumbleweed connected to the desert floor. Strict enforcement of existing laws will result in convicing millions of them to return to Mexico or to move on to greener pastures.

      • ReagansZombie February 6, 2014 at 6:41 pm #

        And what state might that be? Is it one we may have heard of?

        • maxonepercent February 6, 2014 at 6:47 pm #

          Arizona, the bill was SB1070, and it has been one of the best things to ever happen to our state, even though most of it has never been enforced. Alabama is another state that had a similar experience. They passed a strong enforcement bill, tens of thousands of illegals left the state before it was even signed into law, and since then the economy and budget has improved dramatically.

          • ReagansZombie February 6, 2014 at 6:48 pm #

          • maxonepercent February 6, 2014 at 6:54 pm #

            Illegal immigration is always going to be a problem here, but the point is that illegal immigrants will leave when pressured to do so, most have only been in the US a few years at most and haven’t even learned English. They are here for money, when that dries up they will go back home.

          • Pamela February 6, 2014 at 7:04 pm #

    The Frankfurt school of cultural Marxism
    has used immigration as a bludgeon (and a few other tools) against good hearted
    Middle America for years. Immigration started becoming a displacement strategy
    in the 1960s. Any expression of concern that the culture of your town was
    changing was met with accusation of “bigotry.”

    The desire from corporations is
    low wage employees (naturally), the desire from politicians is 3rd world
    immigrants who overwhelmingly desire more centralized government “free
    services.” These “free” services are a result of accrued excess
    wealth from free market activity in the Unites States. They are right now
    milking the remaining life from the most innovative health car system in the

    Mexico is a democracy, instead of
    fleeing to the U.S., why don’t they vote for more free things there?

    As if there are only positive
    cultural side effects from mass immigration? Look at the prison population. The
    cost to communities. Ms13.

    Can we really expect the torch of
    liberty to be passed onto a population which the Federal Government has invited
    here for the expressed purpose of getting welfare?

    Can we really expect the torch of liberty to be passed onto a population which the Federal Govenment has invited here for the expressed pupose of getting welfare?

    Well, I just donated to David Brat’s campaign and a few days ago I also donated to Eric Gurr who is challenging Boehner.

    I live in Paul Ryan’s district (Wisconsin 1st) and unfortunately no one has stepped forward to primary him. And his Democrat opponent doesn’t have a chance of beating him; his only claim is that his father was the president of the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, WI where Wade Michael Page shot and killed 6 people two years ago.

    Ryan has sold out his constituency. Part of his district is Racine, WI which has the highest unemployment rate in the entire state at around 11 percent. Inner city and black unemployment is over 50 percent yet he is pushing amnesty for illegal immigrants.

    • scot February 6, 2014 at 6:58 pm #

      you need to run in the primary, or else contact the Tea Party folks and Club for Growth and get somebody in that primary against Ryan! Have confidence in yourself!

      • HappyWarrior February 6, 2014 at 7:07 pm #

        I can’t run; at least not right now. The largest and most active Tea Party group in the entire state is the Racine Tea Party and they supported Ryan in the 2010 and 2012 elections. I don’t know what their position on him is now because I stopped attending the meetings after Ryan sold out.

        The irony is that there are local pro-amnesty groups here like Voces de la Frontera that actively worked against Ryan and Romney in the 2012 presidential elections. If you paid attention you know there was a lot of voter fraud in Racine. Yet last year Ryan stood up at a town hall meeting and promised Voces de la Frontera activists that he would support amnesty for them.

  133. Mikey February 6, 2014 at 6:48 pm #

    Cantor, Boehner, Rubio, Ryan and other Rinos have shown there true colors. They’ll try to fool you into voting for them again, thats why they’re dropping amnesty for now. If they get elected they’ll go full bore on amnesty. Don’t buy it, don’t be fooled, vote them out in the primaries.

    I bet even the illegal aliens understand the country is in bad shape. We can’t handle 30 million immigrants, lets put our people to work. How foolish can the Republican leadership be 47 million Americans living in poverty.

I am planning on doing the same for any decent challenger running against Speaker Boehner also. Trust me…the only reason they seem to be backing off a little on this is because of the push-back from rank and file republicans. This whole agenda is being pushed by the US Chamber of Commerce and powerful corporations. The globalists and global elite have been pushing this whole thing for about three decades now. Unless the citizens of this country ratchet up the heat….this could very well pass.

      Seven terms in the House = 14 years. Congress won’t impose term limits on itself, so it’s up to voters to replace representatives after a MAXIMUM of 12 years – Two Senate terms or 6 in the House of Representatives. By that time they become ‘Establishment’ types and part of the problem.

      What an influence culture can play; you go to Hollywood as a heterosexual and you become bi-sexual, you go to D.C. as a conservative and you become a RINO.

    The Maine Tea Party has proposed a 12-year limit on Congressional service — total Senate and House (for instance, six House or two Senate terms or three House and one Senate term).

    When I first heard about it, I thought it was too strict. Now I think, if anything, it might be too lenient.

  152. kenfrombayside February 6, 2014 at 7:21 pm #

    Keep the pressure on your reps in congress. Giving 11 – 30 million (nobody knows for sure) criminal lawbreakers legalization pure insanity. Plus, they could sponsor their relatives; that would bring the total up to about 50 million aliens in our midst. Of course, these new citizens will vote for the vile democrats and their socialist giveaways. Most of them will be unskilled, uneducated, low IQ etc. Stop this outrageous bill now. Don’t sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don’t want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
    – Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
    – after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep’s voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don’t threaten
    – go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
    – use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America’s insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don’t give the parties any money.
    – join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
    – go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
    – Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.
    – text everybody in your cell phone queue now.

      Well than most of America can sink. At some point you have to stand up for the RIGHT decision, not the POPULAR one. If you lose, you lose, but more importantly the winning side LOSES for making a bad decision. At some point the constant losing cannot be blamed on republican scapegoats, and people will have no choice but come around to the TRUE alternative or else just keep suffering the consequences

      That is the beauty of the Obamacare fiasco. There is ZERO culpability for republicans (small R intentional), primarily because everyone knew the Tea Party would kick them out if they went along with it. Now the democrats have NOTHING to deflect culpability. Zero leg to stand on in an indefensible turd of legislation. NOW it needs to be repealed and the underlying problems driving prices up in medical care, namely government intervention and distortions in medical markets, can be addressed.

      OORRR you can continue to “play nice” with the other children who want nothing to do with you or your desires unless they get their way. Pick your side. You’re gonna have to insist on doing things the CONSTITUTIONAL way or you are simply capitulating, nothing more. SO pick your side.

    I say, let’s support Brat as much as we possibly can! Even small donations like say $10 do add up. Cantor is a sellout. He seems to not really give a crap about Conservative values. He is Boehner’s sidekick, after all, and has his eyes on being Speaker some day soon. It’s unfortunatly “every man for himself” in D.C. now.

    Where do we send money to Brat?

    • Mike Herman February 7, 2014 at 1:19 am #

      Google his name and you’ll find his home page with donation instructions and more background.

  200. White clowns February 6, 2014 at 8:58 pm #

    We must all donate to each candidate opposing our “fearless” leaders. Even $5 or $10 times thousands of supporters all across the country will add money and moral support to these brave campaigns.

  201. ProudlyUnaffiliated February 6, 2014 at 8:59 pm #

    Wondering if Cantor will be playing the Ramones’ classic song, “Beat on the Brat” at his campaign events–
    Beat on the brat
    Beat on the brat
    Beat on the brat with a baseball bat
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, uh-oh.

    What can you do?
    What can you do?
    With a brat like that always on your back
    What can you do? (lose?)

    I’ve Already Decided… ‘Not to Vote’ for any incumbents. We need many more non-career, ‘driven-but-not-yet corrupted’ politicians that are not in the pockets of lobbyists and who refuse to follow the GOP machine down the Rabbit Hole.

    In my opinion, few Republican politicians deserve the honor of being re-elected to serve a second term — let alone a third or fourth term. It’s time to retire career politicians whose main motivation is to do anything just to get re-elected no matter the cost to the average American.

    It’s certainly time to kick the ‘old guard’ to the curb.

      My Rep is Dana Rohrabacher. He deserves to be returned to office. Sometimes it just depends.

    • MissSterious February 6, 2014 at 9:23 pm #

      Many of the new younger Republicans are conservatives. People need to take a hard look at voting records. That is what is most important.

  203. nomercy55 February 6, 2014 at 9:06 pm #

    use facebook, twitter,instagram and all other forms of communication to get out the vote in 2014 and get the rinos and the demoncrats out…!!

    This is an Oxymoron, replacing a BRAT with someone named Brat . . . I love it. Go Dave Brat !

    Well, well, well – now Mr. Cantor is seeing the error of his ways. The Republican Party is in the midst of a re-birth and re-definition of its platform – and it’s looking more and more like it’s moving toward conservatism. ADVICE TO ALL REPUBLICANS: Listen to Limbaugh, Levin, Savage, et al – that’ll tell you what you should be thinking. Stop competing for your place on the DC cocktail circuit. Too bad we can’t primary Justice Roberts – now we’re stuck with him.

    The unorganized Tea party movement is hard at work targeting these Rino’s and the progressive liberal socialist (PLS) they conspire with. The primary election weapon is their main tool. If you can vote, make sure you vote in the coming primary elections to unset these Rino’s in your area. This is the same way the progressive liberal socialist took over the democratic party and they fear this tactic like a vampire fears a cross. You can always tell when the PLS fear a movement. They do everything in their power to destroy it.

    Good, I hope he loses and his constituents send him back to Israel.

  208. J Kevin Brent February 6, 2014 at 9:20 pm #

    It’s about time someone challenged him since, Eric Cantor-won’t do his damn job.

  209. monty capuletti February 6, 2014 at 9:22 pm #

    I live in the 7th district with cantor, and he is one of the great phonies up there…he says everything you need to hear and have done. but he is concerned about his position and his net worth.

  210. Thomas Eftim February 6, 2014 at 9:26 pm #

    We got them on the run! They are scurrying like rats. We need a few more good men and women to take over Washington D.C. and return the power back to the States and strip down the Feds.

  211. February 6, 2014 at 9:33 pm #

    Time to start calling those who believe in constitution, rule of law and enforcement of law the true progressives.
    What we have with the Democrats and Rhino Republicans are the true conservatives because they rule us just as leaders have throughout time. Separate laws or enforcement for themselves and their favored people. Harsh treatment of those who go against them.
    They are conservative because they want things to be like they have always been until the Constitution was adopted.

  212. Gary Smith February 6, 2014 at 9:35 pm #

    Goodbye Cantor. Dump all the RINOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  213. Change is Coming February 6, 2014 at 9:36 pm #

    Best news today. I too live in the 7th district and have hungered for new representation. Plan on making a donation to help Prof Brat and I don’t even know anything about him or his platform yet. Gotta be better than what we have now.

  214. AuldGuy February 6, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

    This is going to be a very interesting election… Very interesting…


  215. Confucius February 6, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

    The garbage truck is comming and the rinos will start running.

  216. pokey5735 February 6, 2014 at 9:38 pm #

    I will donate to Dave Brat and hope he defeats Cantor and that he remains a staunch supporter of fairness to the American citizen, our sovereignty, future legal immigrants, and to the Constitution of the United States.

  217. savage24 February 6, 2014 at 9:39 pm #

    These are the first steps to taking the GOP back, and restoring the Party of smaller government, less taxes, and more individual freedom. The American people are fed up with the career politicians and would do the country a great service by voting them out of office.

    On Friday, Cantor said on the House floor that “immigration reform could be an economic boon to this country.”

    Like many people, I always thought Eric Cantor was a pretty intelligent, likable guy who talked with a mouthful of marbles. How he could even consider that immigration “reform” ( hah hah ) could possibly be an economic boom to this country. Poor people from any country will only tax the social benefits lifetree which is paid for by hardworking taxpayers. There will not be an economic boom.

    • Chaunte February 6, 2014 at 9:51 pm #

      Obama is trying to sell the same manure that Cantor is.

  219. 3rdjerseyman February 6, 2014 at 9:45 pm #

    He is bought and paid for by the Chamber of Commerce.

  220. johnhay February 6, 2014 at 9:49 pm #

    Can you people not please make the distinction between legal and illegal immigration, ’cause to legal immigrants like myself, it’s a racist stereotype to lump us all in together as lawbreakers. I’m sorry, if someone breaks into your house, they’re not a guest.

    • paratrooper February 7, 2014 at 12:59 am #

      Americans will call them what (illegals) are then, Mexican Nationals who have broke American laws to sneak into the Country! Of course Mexico would welcome American gringo’s into Mexico illegally while an American could piss and moan about being stereotyped by the Mexican government!
